Religions tell you that you must
have faith because there is no other reason for believing! One does not need
faith where enough evidence exists. I don’t need faith that gravity will
suddenly give way because according to all my perceived observations and
experiences- gravity has never failed me or anyone else before!
Listen believers.....If there
really is a god, and there really is some ultimate truth that we humans must
know for the sake of our eternal souls, then this knowledge/truth should be as
universal and obvious as anything else! This knowledge/truth should be as
obvious as the sun rising and setting, the wind blowing, gravity holding us to
the earth, grass being green....etc...........
It should not be something we can
only come to understand through a 2000 year old iron age text!- Not something
which had to be translated from Hebrew and Greek, Not something so
contradictory and out of line with the facts that its own believers fight and
argue over its meaning. Not something that displays the biasness of its authors
and its time and place. If an ultimate truth exists and we are supposed to know
it, than any god who did not make it universally obvious is ultimately to
blame! That is why I do not believe we are "supposed" to know
anything, we just learn what we put are minds to learn.
